Comments

Cuvee de O Godello expresses the freshest expression of the Valdeorras’ unique slate soils and indigenous clones of Godello. Sur lie ageing and used large format barrel fermentation impart a weight and complexity to Cuvée de O that sets it apart from other young Godellos. Voted the best young white in Valdeorras by the D.O. tasting board in 2014.
